The practical demonstrations and research which led to the preparation of this paper involved a combination of stakeholder engagement, policy debate and the practical demonstration and testing of autonomous vehicles. By adhering to a design approach... Read More about Rethinking engagement in urban design: reimagining the value of co-design and participation at every stage of planning for autonomous vehicles..

Being there: capturing and conveying noisy slices of walking in the city. (2022)
Journal Article
BELKOURI, D., LANNG, D.B. and LAING, R. 2022. Being there: capturing and conveying noisy slices of walking in the city. Mobilities [online], 17(6), pages 914-931. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1080/17450101.2022.2045871

The practice of walking allows us to engage with the city slowly, through kinaesthetic skill and the multisensorial apparatus of the body. Studying the city through this immersed practice-on-the-move facilitates attention to the direct contact with t...

Shifting perspectives on autonomous vehicles: using laser scanning technology to engage the public via the analysis of journeys seen ‘through the eyes’ of autonomous vehicles. (2022)
Journal Article
BELKOURI, D., LAING, R. and GRAY, D. 2022. Shifting perspectives on autonomous vehicles: using laser scanning technology to engage the public via the analysis of journeys seen 'through the eyes' of autonomous vehicles. TeMA: journal of land use, mobility and environment [online], 2022(1): new scenarios for safe mobility in urban areas, pages 167-179. Available from: https://doi.org/10.6092/1970-9870/8635

It is likely that Autonomous Vehicles will have significant social, cultural, spatial and environmental implications and that the interaction between humans, automated vehicles and physical environment will provide an array of challenges. This paper...

Is what cities need what people want? An evaluation of "Spaces for people" in Aberdeen city centre, in order to ensure post-pandemic-induced people-first approach to future sustainable public life. (2021)
Report
BELKOURI, D., KHAIRY, L. and LAING, R. 2021. Is what cities need what people want? An evaluation of "Spaces for people" in Aberdeen city centre, in order to ensure post-pandemic-induced people-first approach to future sustainable public life. Aberdeen: Robert Gordon University.

Due to the unprecedented global pandemic and subsequent measures to control the spread of COVID-19, cities have had to quickly re-evaluate the importance and use of public, accessible places around us, and acknowledge that the quality of outdoor spac...

Aberdeen: one step at a time: how to prioritise movement of people and make walking cool.
Report
BELKOURI, D. and LAING, R. 2020. Aberdeen: one step at a time: how to prioritise movement of people and make walking cool. Hosted on the CIVITAS project website [online]. Available from: https://civitas.eu/resources/one-step-at-a-time-aberdeen-site-portfolios

During the course of undertaking local evaluation within the PORTIS project in Aberdeen, our experience suggested that in order to develop a much deeper understanding of cause and effect in relation to walking within the city, we would need to collec...
